Spring has sprung, and with it comes longer days filled with a number of activities that are geared to challenge and inspire our students’ minds, bodies and souls. Our students continue to earnestly prepare for the upcoming End of Course testing and Advanced Placement exams. They understand that the lessons learned and strategies employed go far beyond an exam. You’ll hear our students chattering about our premiere event of Say Yes to the Dress: GK Prom edition. The excitement is palpable as we approach Junior-Senior Prom 2017, and our first annual Athletic Banquet with former Saints player Torrance Small serving as our guest speaker. We will celebrate our scholar-athletes recognizing them for their efforts on and off the field or court.
I also recognize that it is also a bitter-sweet time for our seniors as they move closer to not only the end of the academic year, but to the last chapter in their Jefferson Parish Schools high school career. Class officers and sponsors have worked with the Dean of Students to create activities and events that will showcase their pride and strength as a class.
All in all, Fighting Irish Pride is a status that is not lightly given, but achieved through smart and concerted work. I know it, our current students know it, our (soon-to-be) alums know it.
Filled with Fighting Irish Energy,
Ms. Sharon Meggs-Hamilton
